    Peppermint Sugar Scrub Recipe


    • 1/2 cup coconut oil
    • 1  to 1 1/4 cup sugar
    • 15-20 drops Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil
    • jar
    • printable peppermint sugar scrub labels


    1. Measure coconut oil when solid. Melt coconut oil and allow to cool. Stir in 1 cup sugar and 15 drops peppermint essential oil. Put the sugar scrub mixture into jars. Place label on top of jar.

    During the winter I like to use 1/2 cup coconut oil to 1 cup sugar. My skin is a bit dryer and I love the extra moisturizer.  In the summer when my home is warmer and the coconut oil might not always stay solid I use 1/2 cup coconut oil to 1 1/4 cup sugar.  I always use at least 15 drops of the essential oils because I really want to take advantage of the aromatherapy benefits!

      I made a single batch to try and I'm wondering if I'm using the wrong kind of coconut oil. Later in the day I went to try the scrub it was solid. How do you get it to stay soft? I used the winter ratio sugar to oil. What did I do wrong? I was hoping to make gifts for my co-workers.

        Carla, no you didn't do anything wrong. The coconut oil with set up, espeically during the winter when our homes our cooler. When first hop in the shower I hold the jar in my hands a minute... it is enough to soften around the edges and I scoop it out. If you want it to stay more liquid use fractionated coconut oil. This type of coconut oil will stay liquid.

        Either way I think you will love how super silky this sugar scrub recipe makes your skin feel. I have even been using it on my face. I think I am going to add Frankincense and Copaiba along with the lavender for my next batch for extra benefit to my skin. I will let you know.

      Can you use liquid coconut oil or does it have to start off solid?

        Tricia, yes you can use the liquid... it will keep it from getting solid in the winter months.

      This is probably a silly question- but is this the recipe for one jar of scrub?

        Hi Jenni, not a silly question at all.... but it is hard to answer since jar sizes are different. I used small jars and it filled two. It all will depend on the size you choose.
